Cree Church Lane
   North out of Leadenhall Street at No. 86, west of St. Katherine Creechurch (P.O. Directory). In Aldgate Ward.
   First mention: O. and M. 1677.
   Other names : "Creed Church Lane" (Strype, 1720). "Church Lane" (Stow, ed. 1633, p. 150). "Christ Churchstreate," 28 Eliz. (Lond. I. p.m. III. p. 86).
   Called in the plans of Holy Trinity Priory 1592, reproduced in Home Counties Mag. II. pp. 45-53, "The way oute of Allgat Streat in to Creechurch monastery."
